I know this kinds of cast iron mechanical banks are popular, but this one has no markings so I can't tell who the manufacturer is or what date it was produced. Works beautifully.
I have seen the same bank without the black face, called Humpty Dumpty. If anyone has any info regarding this treasue, lemme know!

    Looks to be a reproduction bank with a repainted "Black Americana" face to attract buyers.

    This bank looks fairly new so I agree it is a reproduction. Any ideas on what this kind of bank is worth? I know plenty of folks are collecting black American art these days.

    You can buy them on ebay for about $10 with the traditional painting.
